Runde Shaw, also known as Shao Cunren and Shao Rendi, was the second-oldest of the Shaw brothers, originally from Ningbo, Zhejiang, China, who established Tianyi Film Company in Shanghai in the early 1920s, setting the stage for what would become the most prolific film production company in Asia.
His father was Shanghai textile merchant Shaw Yuh Hsuen (1867–1920).
Under the direction of Runme, this Singapore-based operation would eventually grow to become known as the modern-day Shaw Organisation. In 1937, Runde traveled to Hong Kong to establish operations there. Run Run would go on to establish Shaw Brothers Studio and take control over Television Broadcasts Limited., Hong Kong"s dominant terrestrial television broadcaster, building an unrivaled position in the Chinese media industry.
